# Adding Prime Numbers

## Prof. Ben Green, Trinity College, University of Cambridge

Ben Green is the Herchel Smith Professor of Pure Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and Fellow of Trinity College. He has also held positions at Princeton, the Rényi Institute, PIMS, MIT and Harvard. Much of his research is in Additive Combinatorics, problems in this area may have the flavour of number theory, analysis or combinatorics, or combinations of all three. He is well known for his part in the Green-Tao theorem, proving that the sequence of prime numbers contain arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions.
